John 8:31-32 Jesus said: “If you abide in My Word, you are My disciples indeed. And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.”
This is what you will find at Abiding Word Ev. Lutheran Church of Bowling Green, Ohio. In a world that is constantly changing, many people are looking for an unmovable foundation that they can build themselves upon. That foundation is God’s Word proclaimed in its truth and purity and distributed in the Sacraments of Holy Baptism and the Lord’s Supper. Through these tools of Word and Sacrament God brings us the blessings that Jesus Christ won for us with his life, death, and resurrection. In Christ we receive the Forgiveness of Sins, Salvation, and Eternal Life.
We are a Confessional Lutheran Church that understands ”The Word of God is and should remain the sole rule and norm of all doctrine” (FC SD, Rule & Norm, 9), and “We pledge ourselves to the prophetic and apostolic writings of the Old and New Testaments as the pure and clear fountain of Israel, which is the only true norm according to which all teachers and teachings are to be judged” (FC SD, Rule and Norm, 3). The Confessions and Creeds of our congregation and synod (found in the Book of Concord: The Confessions of the Lutheran Church) state what we as Lutherans believe to be the teachings of Scripture and what we therefore believe, teach, and publicly confess.
